Houndstooth Check Umbrella

Hooray, it's April and the craft world says 'umbrellas'!

Here I've used a very old and well-used Woodware stamp, paper-pieced with a scrap of patterned paper, coloured with Promarkers and with a touch of shimmer pen. The sentiment is Avery Elle.

A wonderful piece of patterned paper to paper piece that umbrella! It makes the rain look kindof cheerful, although I am finding it a bit dreary irl!
